Leicester's success shows we all love underdog to triumph

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 25/04/2016

Yesterday's resounding defeat of Swansea by Leicester City leaves their footballers tantalisingly close to completing the fairy tale story of winning the Premier League for the first time in the club's history.

While football supporters give primary allegiance to their own team, Leicester's unlikely success has made them the second favourites of many.

During a period when top-flight football is dominated by clubs with the most money, the Foxes' success has been a welcome and hugely-enjoyable exception to the norm. It all goes to show that everybody roots for the underdog in a battle against the odds, and Leicester just keep on winning.
